Old Firehouse Books has been selected for the 2019 Best of Fort Collins Award in the Book Store category by the Fort Collins Award Program

"Each year, the Fort Collins Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the Fort Collins area a great place to live, work and play. Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2019 Fort Collins Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Fort Collins Award Program and data provided by third parties."

The Fort Collins Award Program was established to recognize the best of local businesses in our community. Our organization works exclusively with local business owners, trade groups, professional associations and other business advertising and marketing groups.

Fort Collins Reads... LUIS ALBERTO URREA!

Novelist, non-fiction writer, poet, and essayist, Luis Alberto Urrea and his novel, THE HOUSE OF BROKEN ANGELS are this year's selection!

The book is about a raucous, multi-cultural family all with unique personalities gathering for a funeral and birthday celebration—all during one weekend! The novel is a New York Times Notable Book and one of the best books of 2018 for NPR, Kirkus Reviews, and the New York Public Library. The New York Times describes the book as, “Epic..Rambunctious…Cheerfully profane…Highly entertaining…A powerful rendering of a Mexican-American family that is also an American family.”

A professor of creative writing at the University of Illinois Chicago, Urrea is best known for the non-fiction “The Devil’s Highway,” which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, and “Hummingbird’s Daughter,” an historical novel. He also won an American Book Award for his memoir “Nobody’s Son: Notes From an American Life.”

Though the ticket pre-sale has ended, you can still purchase the book and get a jump start on reading! Tickets for the November 3rd event will go on sale September 4th!  


Liberate Your Audiobook and E-book Libraries with Libro.fm and Hummingbird! 

We know you're busy, and you don't always have time to sit down and read a book. And space is limited, so paper-and-ink copies aren't always practical when you can squish a whole library onto your e-reader. Luckily, we've got you covered on both fronts! 

Libro.fm is your one-stop shop for audiobooks. You pick the duration of your subscription--one month, three months, six months, or the whole year--and you get access to over 100,000 audiobooks on any of your devices at any time you want. You get one audiobook a month for your subscription, and you can purchase even more audiobooks for 30% off! You can sign up through Libro.fm/oldfirehousebooks to support them and us and make your road trip or your daily run  just a little more literary! 

Hummingbird is the place to go for e-books! Hit up our storefront at oldfirehousebooks.papertrell.com to browse thousands of quality e-books from today's bestsellers to your kid's new favorite picture book, from this month's mystery book club pick to the romance you've been craving to the history book you want to learn from. They've got everything you could imagine available to download to all your favorite devices. Their Frequently Asked Questions page will even tell you how to get the app on your Kindle Fire or Nook! 

Since we're partnered with Libro.fm and with Hummingbird, every audiobook you subscribe for or e-book you buy through our storefronts on their websites helps us. So you're not only supporting fantastic digital book services, you're supporting your favorite indie, too! It's a win-win-win for them, us, and you! 


Don't Forget Your Student Discount! 

A lot of you have taken advantage of this, but we want to remind all college students (and faculty!)--at CSU and FRCC--that if you show us your valid student (or faculty!) ID, you'll get 15% off each item you purchase from us! You must show us your ID at the beginning of your transaction at the register for the discount to be applied. This discount does not stack with other discounts, but we'll always give you the better of the discounts!
